Junkman's Keyed Car Damage Repair Video

This is a video of a friend's car that was keyed (for a second time... I fixed it 6 years ago in another thread). He's a real nice guy so I don't know why anyone would do this. The car has factory clear coat and paint on it so COMPLETELY removing the damage is out of the questions due to how thin the clear coat is. I would say that I removed 99% of the damage but played it safe and left what would have been too dangerous to remove because I wasn't using a paint thickness gauge. For the most part, no one will notice what's left unless they were looking for it.

The objective of fixing a keyed car is to make it look like it didn't happen. You may not in most cases be able to completely fix it (as is in this video), but you can atleast get it to the point where it looks 100% better. That's the goal I shoot for because repainting the car is a headache that I want to avoid.

I am NOT showing the complete repair process in this video because I am using advanced tools and I am pressed for time. But if you want to see the complete process, step by step, check out the repair that I did on the Lamborghini Murcielago.

Now as for the headlight repair, that a totally different video for another day.
